Anchorage’s Caleb Holley stepped into a time machine for the Ottawa Redblacks and delivered his most receiving yards since 2017 in the Canadian Football League.

The fourth-year wide receiver made five receptions and racked up 83 yards in a 21-7 loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in Week 9 of the season.

His 83-yard effort tied for the fourth-most receiving yards in 41 career games in the CFL.

Seven times the 6-foot-4 wideout has surpassed the 80-yard benchmark, but this was his first time doing it in 19 games.

Here is a list of his top CFL games in terms of receiving yards and the year he did it:

121 2016
110 2016
86 2017
83 2019

80 2016

Holley, of East High fame, missed last week’s game with an injury and has posted 27 catches for 284 yards and no touchdowns on the year.

Holley – the first Alaskan to play in the CFL in two decades – owns career totals of 136 catches for 1,760 yards and seven TDs. Those are all state records.

The 28-year-old played his first three seasons in the league with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
